No worries, I'm checking it every few days. Would love to know some more of the nicknames for the various claw trucks, polecat cars, etc. I imagine most of them had at least an informal name if not an actual designation (such as Silver Surfer or Ploughboy).

I wrote up a bad guy / vehicle "body count" list for the film, which I posted on Reddit a few months back, but I'd love to go and update it with the actual vehicle names when they've all been identified.

Also Artemis, you've probably seen this already, but here's some identifications of the Gastown vehicles that could help:

tehCal:

Two of the vehicles in that image are incorrectly identified.

1955 Pontiac Star Chief = Pontiac Safari Wagon "Surfari"
1979 Datsun 280zx = Datsun 240z


The rest seems to be ok, but I'm not sure about the Benz shell on the AM General M814 chassis.

Some of the cars just had names like " Buggy #9 , Caltrop Vehicle #3 , Claw Car etc , we have found an anomally with the Monaro in the early scenes it has the Surfari front end CGI'd onto it as well as a blower

I also heard the Surfari called the Silver Surfer Taipan ?

Yeah I heard the name too, but I think Andrew said it was called the Surfari.

How could you tell the difference? And I mean that legitimately I am new to cars (since Fury Road) >.<

I'm pretty sure it was a 280zx, cause of the T-top roof. Although I guess that could of been a modification.

To be honest, I couldn't! It's damn near impossible to determine if it's a Star Chief or plain Safari from the pictures and due to modification (I think Safari was a luxurious version of the Star Chief and it had different wheelbase, shorter I think).
My info is based on intel from the mechanics that worked on the movie. Same with the Datsun, they said it was a 240z so I'll trust them on that.

On the Facebook group "Mad Max Fury Road Cars", somebody posted a photo of a Citadel vehicle I hadn't noticed previously -- a black semi truck cab, which is briefly seen behind the Caddy and the Monaro in their introductory tracking shot. There's a War Boy perched on the bonnet and everything. It was described as either a Mack or a Ford, I can't remember which, but it definitely is not the "Mack" tow truck.

Apparently the truck was brought back to Sydney and is being sold by its owner for ~$10K AUD.

Also quick question, I keep seeing mentions of the Dodge being crushed in the canyon -- I don't recall seeing this, despite having watched the movie like ten times. At what point does this happen? Or was it from a deleted shot?

And... does anyone know what FDK actually stands for?
